We're here to support you

Sector support

Below are a number of ways we're supporting the sector with its attraction and recruitment activity. If you’d like to discuss any of these further, or have any questions please get in touch with your account manager.

An applicant's view

For regular insight on how applicants are feeling, join us, and our partners, YouthSight, for our series of free webinars. If there is a theme you’d particularly like to explore, please tell us about it.

      Increase your recruitment reach

      The peer-to-peer network gets your existing students in front of those looking for courses or unis, meaning you can keep connecting with prospective students. Unibuddy will support your onboarding and launch – so within days, you’ll be up and running.

      If you'd like more information on how Unibuddy on ucas.com can help you, please get in touch. You can contact your UCAS Media account manager or Unibuddy directly at [email protected] or call 020 7886 7674.

      Promotion of your virtual and in-person events

      To update your events information, access the open day information through the provider pages, then either amend existing events, or add new ones. You’ll notice there is now an additional option under ‘schemes’ for virtual events – please ensure this is ticked where relevant. 

      For more information on how to do this, please click here.

      Benefit from UCAS’ social feeds

      If you’re planning a live social event, for example Facebook Live, let us know and we’ll promote it for you, and then, where possible, share it while it’s streaming live. 

      Please tell us about it.

      Accommodation search

      If you'd like to find out more about accommodation search and how it can help you increase your marketing reach, get in touch. We're offering free listings for universities and colleges until the end of the 2022 cycle, to give your current activity to existing applicants a real boost, and of course, you’ll also be reaching those who are still considering where to apply.
